If you're doing tile or stone floors, work on picking those materials at the same time as cabinets, backsplash and countertops. The relationships among these materials is critical. It's tough to mix different types of stone and tile unless you want your kitchen to look like a showroom.

If your front door opens directly into your living room, it's all too easy (especially at the end of a long day) to zoom through the entry and plop down on the sofa, leaving a trail of bags, shoes and mail as you go. Slow the pace of entry by putting in some strategically placed "speed bumps" along the way – a bench to sit on to take off your shoes, hooks and floating shelves on the wall, a sofa table with storage below and a tray for collecting mail can all help.

With their clean lines and comfort, button‐backed chesterfield sofas are truly timeless, and look as good in a modern warehouse apartment as in a grand country abode. The classic version comes in tan leather, but for a sumptuous update, I love the raspberry‐pink and pewter‐colored velvet numbers here.

Asian‐style homes tend to display only the most thoughtfully selected items, so simple modern shelves that frame this fireplace top and bottom suit the space perfectly. Consider downlights as a way to give those display items pride of place.

Eating out all the time gets tiresome, not to mention the strain it can put on your budget. And no matter how much takeout you bring home, you'll still need a spot to make school lunches, pour a bowl of cereal or brew coffee. Set up a temporary kitchen somewhere that's out of the way of construction. If you're lucky enough to have a morning kitchen or a guesthouse, you can turn that into food‐prep central. Or outfit a corner of the basement, garage or workroom with a few portable tables, standalone shelves, storage crates and folding chairs.

Jute, coir, sisal and sea grass are casual and beachy, and go with anything – especially stripes. Try partnering your striped sofa with a jute or sisal rug, water hyacinth armchairs and a rope‐framed mirror for a fresh, nautical look.

In typical Draper fashion, it was girly but still simple and refined.

In typical Draper fashion, it was girly but still simple and refined. Now that Sally is getting into her tweens and teens, her rebellious side is starting to pop up. Sally may be a a girly girl for at least the beginning of her tween years, but as she starts to develop her own style (and delves into the wild style of the early '70s), bold patterns and color may start to make an appearance in her room. Pale pink walls can be replaced with a vibrant (but tasteful) lavender, and a bright pink duvet can cover up the old floral bedding. A graphic rug gives this bedoom the final dose of that great mod style.

The timber shelving unit ties in with shelving used elsewhere in the room – a nifty trick to prevent fireside storage that looks like it doesn't belong.
